Christian Care Center Rescue Mission
The Samaritan Inn
The Samaritan Inn is a transitional housing facility for homeless children and their parents or caregivers. The program is designed to help families become self-sufficient in a safe environment while teaching them life skills, supporting them as they pursue their personal goals and providing them with spiritual guidance during their journey. The Samaritan Inn is the only shelter in Lake County that accepts families with both men and women and is one of only three such shelters in Central Florida.
After 30 days, a resident can choose to exit our program within a month, or apply to become part of the Transitional Housing Program. This program extends their length of stay to 12 months, during which time the family contributes only $175 or $250 per month (depending on the family) for program fees. Each family works with our staff to expand their case plan with more requirements to help them move forward toward sustainable independence at completion of the program. The expanded case plan includes creating a savings and debt reduction plan, regular church attendance, parenting classes and financial, marriage and vocational counseling. Our desire is to see each family leave with stable housing, consistent income and a closer relationship with Christ.
The Women's Care Center is a housing facility for women who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction or other life issues. The program is designed to provide a safe place for women to recover through counseling, Bible study, life skills instruction and one-on-one mentoring to prepare them for wholesome, productive lives.
